This performance explores the traces that lie in between—sound & silence, light & dark, past & present, physical & transcendental—through the piano music of Tan Dun, choreography by Ivan Perez and Ming-Lung Yang, with direction and design by Cryptic.

An overlapping series of choreographed moments drawn from female archetypes – spanning East to West, Antiquity to Contemporary – the performance uncovers traces that remain and traces we create for the future. Led by the Eastern aesthetic of ‘emptiness’, this performance paints scenes in watercolour, inviting the audience to find their way through their own imagination.
